2014 sewing planes – how did I do?

2014 are at en end, and it is time to take a look at what this past year have brought – in terms of sewing.

A year ago I made a (quite long) list of all the projects I would like to make during 2014. I must say I did pretty well considered the amount of costumes I dream’t about doing.

Lets take a look…

Countdown:
This year I managed to make:
10 dresses
7 jackets/bodices
6 skirts/petticoats
4 support garments (bustle, bumpad ect)
3 corsets
3 hats
8 (and still counting) accessories

Not on the list:
I’ve also styled a few wigs and re-made several pair of pants, skirts, and two wedding dresses.
This year I also made some things I never tried before (but definitely will continue make) – baby clothes.

I also finally started a facebook page for this blog, where I will post lots sewing, costumes and progress pics.

Not made:

Some of the inspirations above will be transferred to next years “Wishlist”, and some will be filed in the “not as exited about anymore” file.

Well, what can I say, a year is a long time when it comes to planing and keeping an interest, and a short time when it comes to actually getting things done.

I’m however very proud of what I accomplished this year.
